I Hate It When Someone Doesnt Text Back

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,608 People

    This guy and me have been talking

    and he does reply but most of the time we'll be having a conversation then he doesn't reply and it fizzles out. Like I thought we were having a good conversation .... So I never text him first. Ready to just call it quits obviously talking to me isn't that interesting

    OMG I HATE THIS ! If you're going to talk to me,

    you can but DO NOT toy with me. If you don't wanna talk to me that's fine but at least say Goodbye. YOU know who YOU are.

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend of almost

    seven months. We were remarkably serious. The separation has hurt more than I ever could've imagined. Today, he moved across the country to begin an internship he's been planning since October. I texted him (my first time reaching out in a month) and wished him all the best. He...

    It's very annoying and rude,

    especially when you ask our say something specific that does warrant a response. I will carry a conversation for only so long before I stop talking to someone altogether. If it's someone new that I'm talking to and they don't reply then I don't bother sending a second message...

    I hate it when people tells me

    that they didn't reply my messages because they are not the type that respond to messages. Will you do that in real life? Like when your friend walk to you and ask how are you doing, and you ignore her because you are just the type not responding to people talking to you? What...

    So I bumped into a girl

    that I really liked and I hadn't seen for half a year, and afterwards I sent her a message and we started chatting. We spoke for a few days until she suddenly stopped responding. She hadn't seen the message, but she was posting other stuff on facebook (this was the 2nd of jan or...

    Sending a text/message then getting ignored is

    the worst thing ever. It's like you annoy them and that they don't want to speak to you. It happens to me all the time..😒

    I don't mind it if someone doesn't text back

    normally. People are busy, I'm not the most important person in the world, I get that. But, what's infuriating is when you take someone who is supposed to be one of your best friends, one of your most trusted friends, and they don't text you, ever. Then one day, you text them...

    I hate one worded answers

    and slow replies. But not texting back at all? That makes me crazy! At least lie and say your phone is dying or you'll talk to me later or something!

    It's awkward when you have to send a lot of

    messages to get a reply. Like did you die or something?

    I loathe when others don't respond.

    Whats worse than that? Short responses when it's someone you want to talk to and they just give you short responses.

    A few weeks ago I met up with a girl from a

    dating site. It was just a friendly meet up. The meet went well. Well, I think so. I decided to text her yesterday saying hi and asking how she is through whatsapp and never got a response. It said she read the message as well (I tend to not bother to see if anyone has read my...

    It's my biggest pet peeve,

    it's not even the not texting back part. It's when you talk to someone for awhile.. Since mere babes.. And you think you're cool but they don't even like talking to you that much. It's annoying when you feel someone feels obligated to talk to you. I only want people that like...

    So you unload all your problems onto me

    and then simply stop talking? As if I had not enough problems of my own, wonderful. Seriously, you're not living up to the standard I'm used to by you, not at all. After all we've been through, that's not what a gentleman does. In fact, that's not what any human being with a...

    and don't respond. Like if you didn't want to talk you could have just said that.

    I have been having someone I care about play

    this game with me for far too long. Text me and call me when you need me & I respond. Ignore me for hours or days or don't respond at times to my messages. I've decided I've had enough. I deserve better.

    Yep I hate it when people don't text me back,

    it leaves me thinking that they just can't be bothered with me or that they think I'm annoying or something... Also I hate it when you write a big text message and then the reply is 'k' ugh
